We love funny translations at WowShack.
It’s something we’ve looked into before (see our first post here), because there’s just something about bad English that cracks everyone up! You can’t blame those around the archipelago because really Bahasa Indonesia is very ‘phonetic’, so these mistakes happen.
But, whatever the reason for this ‘Engrish’ it is simply hilarious and perfect for a laugh.
Here we bring you 21 Funny Indonesian Signs and Translations.
